Abstract

We report the launching of guided waves in a slab waveguide made from a photorefractive polymer. The guided modes are launched when we optically pump the surface of the waveguide. The coupling efficiency increases when the angle of incidence and the power of the pump are increased. Also, the rise time decreases when the pump power is increased.
